At Georgia-Pacific, we're more than consumer products and paper. From the plywood in your home's construction to the boxes in your grocery store, the paper towel dispensers in your hotel to the cellulose in your children's diapers, GP products are part of your everyday life. But it wouldn't be possible to do what we do without the hard work of GP employees all over the country.
Georgia-Pacific is one of the world's leading makers of tissue, pulp, paper, packaging, building products and related chemicals. If you’re a consumer, you may recognize our household brands, such as Brawny® paper towels, Quilted Northern® bath tissue and Dixie® cups and tableware. If you’re in the construction business, you’re probably familiar with our engineered lumber products, gypsum panels and other quality building materials. Even if you work in aerospace, mining or facilities management, Georgia-Pacific products may be part of your day.
The fact is, Georgia-Pacific products are part of everyday life. And while they fill a diverse range of home, commercial and industrial needs, they have one thing in common: they’re all made to high standards of quality and safety. Our 35,000 employees around the world are always looking for better ways of doing things – and our customers, consumers and society benefit.
